5 Virgin & Child Images Perfect for Christmas

by Patrick Werick December 14, 2013

Following Nativity artwork, images of the Virgin and Child rank high in popularity for Christmas-oriented projects. Over and over again, we see our clients using these images for Christmas cards, calendars, church bulletins, books, screen savers and quite a bit more we probably never even hear about.

What we do know for sure is that the five artworks featured in this blog post are downloaded from our website quite regularly. You'll notice that three of the images are by the artist Giovanni Battista Salvi da Sassoferrato (an Italian baroque painter), while the other two are by William A. Bouguereau (a French academic painter). Both artists employ a very realistic touch to their portrayals of the Madonna and Child, as well as other pieces they've created.

The warmth and clarity of this artwork is what makes it exceptional. The theme of pristine and pure love between Our Lady, the Virgin Mary, and her son, Jesus Christ, is rarely crystallized as well in brushstrokes as in these five inspirational images. But feel free to check out the rest of the religious art we sell for download; there's quite a bit more to see on this site. 

We hope and pray this Advent season that you benefit from these images as much as we have at Restored Traditions. Thanks for stopping by!
